Daily Prayer For Today: Tuesday 16th August 2022
Rom 8:38, 39 (ISV) For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor anything above, nor anything below, nor anything else in all creation can separate us from the love of God that is ours in union with the Messiah Jesus, our Lord.
You have reached that point of despair. You have been disappointed, even angry with God. Now, you feel that God no longer loves you. Why is all this happening to me?
But, just as Paul writing to the Christians in Rome, I’m convinced that nothing can separate you from the love of God. What often happens is that we choose to separate ourselves from God’s love.
We behave like little children who, angry with their parents, lock themselves in their room and refuse to speak. We swell up our faces to God and remain silent to let Him know we are so angry and disappointed.
But, just like a loving parent, God waits for us to repent and come back to His loving arms. As the prodigal son, we don’t expect that He will accept us back, but His loving arms are waiting. There is nobody and nothing that can separate you from the love of God.
Let Us Pray
Heavenly Father, thank you for your unfailing love. God’s love is unconditional. God’s love endures forever. My God, so often I have stumbled and disappointed You, yet You welcome me back. When mankind cannot forgive, You forgive me.
Romans 5:8 “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
Oh Lord, keep me close to you. Help me to understand the love You have for me. May I always remember all the blessings you have bestowed upon me and give you thanks and praise.
Psalm 86:15 “But you, O Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.”
Fill me with your love that others may come to know you also. Bless me so that I may bless others. Walk with me and be my guide. In Jesus’ mighty name I pray, Amen.
